3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: earthy malt and hop, floral and grain, honey, light white peach notes
Palate: light medium body, very soft and smooth
Flavor: soft ripe understated baked apple, lightly roasted grain, finishes lightly fruity, off dry but balanced with bittering hop. Mild but decent length on finish.
Comment: smooth and mild without being bland. Better than I expected.
Previous tasting: rated a 27.
Aroma and flavor: straw, light earth, moderately sweet malt, a bit of yeast and a litlle bittering. Preferred 333 Sabeco which had more malt and bitterness.

Quite pleasant aroma upon opening but
this was slightly misleading.It turned out to be a fairly run of the mill lager.Then I found out that the brewey is owned by Heineken so it all fell into place.

I waited many years to try a Bintang, vowing to do it right by trying this in it’s own climate, on it’s own soil. BALI, yes, honeymoon with my lovely wife, even better. Arrived at hotel and sampled my first. God it was hot, the beer barely managed to stay cold under the conditions. Needed.
Over the next fortnight I can’t guess as to how many ’Bintang’ I managed to down, seemed the Balinese drove you to drink it, offering this over the Indonesian brews like Anker or Blah ’Indo-Carlsberg’. Worked well, love the people, and this became a basic necessity to survival as the water in Bali is undrinkable. Poured on many occasions without a head and on the odd one with a decent fluffy patch and even a little lace. Aroma was quite honey sweet with a little grassyness coming through, again differing with location. Taste was heaven, as before mentioned, it was hot and all the walking has made me thirsty. Honey malt, quite sweet, light bodied, crisp and reasonably clean. Had varying carbonation depending on where I bought it on the island. Well known to the frequent visitors as ’Bali water’ or ’Big Bintang’ and believe me I tasted it in Australia and it tasted like a skunky pale lager, tasted in Bali it was a needs for survival, revitalising what the humidity took out of me. The only beer I have tasted that genuinely suits its own climate. Look forward to my next ’Bali water’.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle of 330 ml, bought in the Netherlands where it’s imported. ABV 4,7%. Ingredients are water, malts, sucrose, barley and hops.
Pours a golden yellow colour, with two fingers of soapy white head, good retention. No lacing left behind. Lots of activity in the glass.
My nose is a bit blocked, but I only get an aroma of your typical pilsner, meaning some light hops smell along with some malts
NIce crisp taste, refreshing, very light bitterness on the finish. Quite malty.I thou Nothing really exciting, but quite good nevertheless.
Medium thin body and average carbonation.
Overall not bad. Highly drinkable, although not really a pilsner but closer to a lager.
